At GLOW IV, we are strong proponents of healthy eating, optimal digestive function, building a robust immune system and detoxification. Much of the work we do centers on these principles.
We ask why the disease has occurred and look for the underlying causes and conditions that lead to the symptoms/illness. Our mission is to remove obstacles to healing and recovery, helping our clients achieve vibrant health with more energy, a stronger immune system and slower aging. At Glow IV we recognize an inherent, self-healing process in people that is ordered and intelligent.
Our practitioners emphasize the prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and then making appropriate interventions in partnership with our clients for the best outcomes. So, whether you are battling a serious health issue or you are simply looking for preventive, anti-aging care options…. we can help.
“We want our clients to be stewards of their own health and by educating them on how best to nourish their cells and support their gut health, we give them the tools to succeed and the best chance at reversing and preventing disease.” LeeJoy Ellis,ND

Mary E. Miller-Wilson, a board-certified adult nurse practitioner, became a registered nurse in 2006 and went on to complete her master’s degree in 2010 at the University of Michigan.
She worked on a cardiothoracic unit at the Detroit Medical Center while completing her graduate studies. Upon graduating as a nurse practitioner, she worked in a suburban hospital setting as a hospitalist. It was in this traditional healthcare environment that she began to experience a profound paradigm shift in the way she viewed illness, wellness and the treatment of chronic disease conditions. Because the cornerstone of the nurse practitioner profession is that of health promotion and disease prevention, she soon became disillusioned with the traditional healthcare model and the “pill for every ill” mentality that drives the current healthcare system.
While in graduate school, Mary became a patient in a local Functional Medicine practice in suburban Detroit where she was exposed firsthand to the tenets of Functional Medicine; an emphasis on healthy lifestyle choices, sound nutrition, daily exercise and stress reduction. She ultimately joined this practice and has undergone extensive training in both Functional Medicine (IFM) and Anti-Aging Medicine (Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine) for four years. She was recruited for the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine by Dr. Mark Hyman and continued to expand upon her experience for 2 1/2 years in both functional Medicine and Anti-Aging Medicine. She became certified in Functional Medicine in 2017. Over the last seven years, Mary’s approach to health has always been based on a melding of Functional Medicine and Anti-Aging Medicine, looking for the underlying root cause of disease and assisting patients in being proactive about their health. Her understanding of Functional Medicine as unique and personalized allows her to assess all aspects of a patient’s lifestyle; genetics, environment, emotions, beliefs and social relationships, all of which influence health and disease.
Mary specializes in bio-identical hormone therapy (for both men and women across the health continuum), autoimmune conditions, metabolic syndrome/diabetes, thyroid optimization, anxiety/depression, gut restoration, detoxification (heavy metals, mold exposure), headaches, weight management, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.
Mary’s personal interests include public speaking, spinning, pilates and running after her three grandchildren!
